Our teams work directly with our core user groups giving us a unique collaborative environment where we can see and feel the impact our software makes for our colleagues every day.

This position is specifically for the team focusing on enabling creators to enrich a LEGO building instruction. Here you can expect to work on problems such as: How can we produce the best tools for our internal designers so they can focus on creating the wildest experiences their imaginations can fathom? How can we reduce the time spent on authoring data so more time can be spent on creating experiences? How do we produce the data that defines the fun and how is that data being consumed?
